The Theatre Institute at Sage’s Summer Programs offer an environment where students can feel comfortable and safe exploring, expressing personal creativity. Inappropriate behavior and habitual discipline problems cause difficulty for staff, teachers and other students in class. Therefore, we have developed a Dismissal Policy which outlines a specific procedure for dealing with these problems. Our overall objective is to deal promptly and fairly with discipline problems and to resolve them order to avoid a student’s dismissal from the program. This procedure is to take place after the teacher has already tried to manage the student on his/her own within the classroom.
Certain extreme negative behavior (e.g., physical violence) may warrant immediate dismissal at the discretion of the Summer Programs Coordinator and the TIS Managing Director. Dismissal from TIS Summer Programs does not allow for a tuition refund.
